Balanced levels of vitamins and minerals are complimented by pre and probiotics to optimise digestion and bespoke hoof and immune support nutrients to enhance health and performance without the need to feed multiple products.
Top feeding tip
Feeding is part of a holistic approach to keeping horses healthy and performing at their best. When selecting feeds and formulating your horse’s diet, also consider how stable routine and exercise regime will influence their health. The D&H helpline is also available to provide advice on suitable feeds and to answer your feeding related questions.
